We started with one of the more serious (but hopeful) videos from John then watched Llamas with Hats 2 requested by Imani. It was a perfect introduction to today's activity: animation.
Nerds were shown GoAnimate and Scratch as options for creating short animations. It split nicely down the middle with half of the groups choosing GoAnimate and half choosing Scratch. GoAnimate allowed them to create easy dialogue with a template or create a character and flesh out a whole cartoon. Scratch uses coding to create animations, interactive art, and games. Most didn't have time to complete a project, but enjoyed the tools nonetheless.
